Moses brings extensive local knowledge and legal expertise to CLF RI
February 2, 2017 (PROVIDENCE, RI) – Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) announced today that Amy Moses, Deputy Counsel to Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo, will be taking the helm as the new Director of CLF Rhode Island.
“Throughout her career, Amy has lent her time and her voice to the people and communities who need it most,” said CLF President Bradley M. Campbell. “From the Sierra Club and ACLU to the Governor’s office, Amy has brought unrivaled passion, local knowledge, and legal expertise to defending our environment and our future. We are thrilled to have Amy leading the next chapter in CLF’s ongoing fight for the people of Rhode Island.”
Prior to her current role as Governor Raimondo’s Deputy Counsel, Moses served as a law clerk in Rhode Island’s state and federal courts, a litigator at Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom LLP, a program development coordinator for the ACLU, and a conservation organizer for the Sierra Club.
“CLF has been at the forefront of some of Rhode Island’s seminal environmental triumphs, and it is an honor to be leading such an impressive and accomplished team in the fights ahead,” said Moses. “In the past year alone, CLF has held polluters accountable for endangering our waters, protected the people of Johnston from a toxic landfill, and helped bring offshore wind to our state. We are certain to face countless uphill battles in the years to come, and I know CLF is ready to tackle them.”
Governor Raimondo commented, “Amy has brought passion and dedication to her tenure in public service. We thank her for her service to the State of Rhode Island and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”
Moses is scheduled to begin at CLF on February 21.
